Book Kits

To all book groups and those wishing to begin one:  Are you tired of doing all the research and tracking down enough copies of the book for your book group?   Now you need look no further than the Chapel Hill Public Library!  We are pleased to announce book club kits: everything a group needs contained in one easy box.

  • To see a list of titles go to catalog.chapelhillpubliclibrary.org and click on the link to "Reserve a Book Kit"
  • Each kit holds ten-fifteen books, a notebook that contains author biographical information, reviews and critiques, discussion questions, and any supplemental information for the particular title.
  • One member from the group checks out the entire kit and is responsible for its return.
  • The kit may be checked out for six weeks. If a kit is currently checked out you may place it on hold.

Please share your suggestions for new titles for the book group kits by emailing us at askalibrarian@townofchapelhill.org
